"A delightful collection of 80 tried and tested recipes, The Filipino Cookbook showcases a full range of authentic Filipino dishes." —The Asian Journal

"'Fried rice is a staple in all Asian countries where rice is eaten daily', wrote Miki Garcia in The Filipino Cookbook. She noted that Filipino fried rice is garlicky, and is often accompanied by Filipino sausages …Filipinos like their fried rice garnished with crispy fried garlic or chopped green onion."—The Jerusalem Post

I bought this book because it features some Kapamangan recipes. I know the Kapampangans are well-known in the Philippines for their fine cuisine.
I have tried some desert recipes and they were so yummy (especially Leche Flan and yemas my personal favorites) and my friends loved them too. I will update this review once I have tried other recipes in this book. I can't wait to try adobo...The book is glossy shiny good quality print, with mouthwatering photographs!

As a Filipino, I'm amazed and delighted by the cultural accuracy of this book. I chuckle to myself every time I crack this book open. For instance, for the "vegetables" chapter, the author openly admits that "Filipinos are not known for their consumption of vegetable-only dishes". I've had this problem every time I'm invited to a "cultural potluck" and someone in the group is vegetarian -- it just doesn't work! Even Pinakbet, the quintessential vegetable dish of the Philippines, is flavored with bagoong (shrimp paste). I usually end up just making a dessert.

Here's another one: "Pulburon cookies... have become popular pasalubong (gifts or souvenir items) purchased by people who visit the Philippines for friends back home". I thought this was just a thing within my family!

As for the recipes, they are extremely accurate as well. The Kare-Kare (oxtail stew) calls for regular old sweet peanut butter, not that "all natural" stuff. It also doesn't make you grind the peanuts yourself. It presents each recipe just as a REAL Filipino would cook it, not some "gourmet" permutation.

I highly recommend this book not only as a cookbook, but also as a cultural guide to Filipino cuisine.

I've looked at Filipino cookbooks before and this one has a great lay-out that makes learning how to make Filipino food easy and fun. Great explanation of things to know before starting to cook. Pictures are great.

I have to say it lacks a little bit in recipe quantity. I followed the chicken adobo recipe per the text and it was not a good dish. I will adjust and tweak it next time for sure.

I bought this book to expand my usual repertoire of Filipino dishes. The recipes I have tried have gotten rave reviews especially during potlucks. The only recipe I had a problem with was in making the salted eggs, I still have to try doing it again before i completely give up. But aside from that, all the dishes we tried were tasty and the book even improved some of my old recipes. The pictures were gorgeous and instructions clear and helpful. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is still on the fence whether to buy it or not.

There are about 3 recipes in this book that I love and they have become a part of our regular monthly dinner menu, If I liked seafood i think that I would have many more favorites. Pictures are great, easy to understand instructions and the measurements are written for an American audience (meat in pounds instead of Kilos, cups not grams…) Glad I got it.

Recipes are easy to follow and delicious. You will love this book as long as you like Asian cuisine. You can also buy the ingredients easily at any Asian store.
